Smokin' Joe Frazier - RIP

The Mad Chatter - Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Joe Frazier BOXING legend Smokin' Joe Frazier has died after a short bout with liver cancer, aged 67.

Philly's favourite son reigned as undisputed heavyweight champ during the division's toughest era, won gold at the 1964 Rome Olympics and slugged it out with bitter rival Muhammad Ali in an epic trilogy that started with the brutal "Fight of the Century" at Madison Square Garden in 1971 and ended four years later with the savage "Thrilla in Manilla".

The Mad Chatter - Friday, November 04, 2011

International Rules Australia v Ireland The AFL should do the humane thing and put International Rules out of its misery after the second and final test tonight on the Gold Coast tonight. It has no relevance and I think it's more like International Snooze than International Rules.

Do The Crime So Do The Time - Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif Found Guilty

The Mad Chatter - Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Salman Butt Mohammad Asif Mohammad Aamer Former Pakistan cricket captain Salmon Butt and fellow Pakistani quick Mohammad Asif have been found guilty over night in the Southwark Crown Court of match fixing. I believe any player caught deliberately conspiring to change the outcome of a match, whether they succeed at changing the match or not, should not pass go, should not collect $200 and be sent directly to jail. Congratulations Southwark Crown Court!!

Shut Up Ray Hadley - Stick To Rugby League

The Mad Chatter - Monday, October 17, 2011

Ray Hadley is great at rugby league but not so sure about rugbyVerbal diarrhoea is a painful social affliction whereby its sufferers just won’t shut the hell up. It annoys and alienates victims who will desperately look for any excuse to get away from a dizzying full-frontal attack.

Why The Poker Machine Proposal Is Stupid

The Mad Chatter - Monday, September 26, 2011

Queen of the NileIt's probably no surprise after reading the title of this blog that I am not in favour of the proposed changes to poker machine laws in Australia. I'll outline my reasons below but before I get stuck into it, I will acknowledge that problem gamblers do create problems, but I don't believe controlling those in control in the answer.
